1. A Days Work

Chris walked into his bosses office and slapped the pile of papers down onto the desk, he turned on his heels and made his way out of the room, slamming the door behind him. "Rory, get me that paperwork, deadline tomorrow three o'clock." Without even glancing at Rory he carried on walking, he grabbed his coat and got into the elevator.

Rory called out just as the doors were closing, "Yes sir just need to finish one more paragraph and transfer the interview onto paper, have a good evening!" Chris didn't reply, he didn't need to, he is a serious man, and he needs to be when he is a journalist, he cant be too kind and let people of the hook when the papers have to be published the next day and if the article isn't finished then the paper is almost certainly ruined and it will make it even harder for the people to improvise on that page when there are gaps to fill.

Chris has been doing well, working for the Daily Read, he hasn't made a single slip up and with his form doesn't look like he will. He is the most well known journalist in the whole of Manhattan, Chris Newton. His boss Mr. Hurt, doesn't take kindly to Chris' talent, although he should be thankful that all Chris' work comes in on time. Chris reacts to Mr. Hurts disliking by  usually not speaking to him unless he has to, which is why he just walked into his office slammed the papers down and walked out.

Chris got into his car and started the engine of the Audi A7, he headed off home getting stuck in traffic on his way. When he got home his wife, Hayley Newton greeted him with a kiss.

"Dinners almost ready, you go upstairs and get out of that suit, come down and enjoy my signature spaghetti bolognese. " she told him and he replied with a smile, the first today.

"Good idea," he said. Chris was only really happy when he was at home, he did enjoy his work, he got to go meet people make friends and they got to meet him, he was going to get a promotion but he turned it down, making Mr. Hurt dislike him that little bit more. He didn't want the promotion because he would have to work longer hours and he would miss his home life and wouldn't be able to spend as much time with his beloved wife.

Hayley doesn't work, she stays at home and does the housework and Chris goes out and does the work, more than often treating Hayley to dinner at a fancy restaurant. Chris makes enough money to keep the family going really well, they have never really been in financial problems and unless something bad happens to the company or even Chris then they might experience it for the first time.

He has done well for himself, a great job that pays well, a beautiful wife with a good home to spend time with her in. Nothing hugely interesting happens in Manhattan, but who expects it to, its a business city and home to over one and a half million people, loud but peaceful at the same time, strange. Anyway...
